OMG I have blogged!!!

Yep that's right folks....after nearly 3 months I am put fingers to keyboard lol

I have not scrapped in months due to moving house....its been a 2 month lonnnngggg drawn out thing and I still have not unpacked the craft stuff which means it will be a few weeks yet til i scrap :(

But I do have 3 layouts that I am very proud of and some very good news :)

First the layouts....the 1st 2 are layouts I did for try-outs for DT, which I never got one (will keep you guessing....)

This was one I did for 2 Crafty, an Australian chipboard company. I just love this layout and how it turned out.  The title was coloured by distress stain and the cloud by painting them very lightly. The clock was from a Prima package (re-use everything) and paper was Echo park. Also used the cuttlebug and dies.

I went old school and crunched up the paper, flattened lightly and inked with distress ink. I also used the 'sew easy' for the stitching. Just love how this layout turned out....and the photo of my girl covered in mud lol

Man oh man I need to learn to take the photos straight lol
This was another layout done for 2 Crafty. The chipboard on this was embossed with 2 colours, another old school technique. Again the clock is re-used from prima packaging. Another layout of my girl and the many smiles that she gives :)

This last layout I did for scrap sanity and there first ever challenge.

The challenge was to do journalling somewhere, hidden or not on the layout. Mine is hidden and says:
He will always to be there if you ever need him
He will always love you no matter what you say or do
He will always put you first
And you will always be his little girl

Love this one, one of the reasons to scrap is to keep memories for our children :)

Ok the fab news is.......I WILL BE A GUEST DT FOR SCRAP SANITY!!!!!  I tried out for the full-time DT and ended up getting a guest part!!! I was soooo shocked as I did not think I had a chance at any of it. A biggggg thank-you to Tiff Sawyer :)

Now I know I said this before but this is my yr to blogged, I am going to blogged at least once a week, hoping for more but aim for once a week. Till I have my scrap stuff out of boxes there will not be much layouts but please keep checking :)

Belinda :)
